Not Rebuilding, Reloading

FishDuck Staff FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 5 Comments

The Oregon Ducks roster from 2007-2010 is the next generation’s favorite team, the admiration of most 21-and-under’s across the country; and for good reason, this ain’t your granddad or father’s Oregon Ducks.

These reports would get passed around various Oregon websites to much fanfare, the fervor over these largely was the motivation behind starting this website.
